New Hotel Opening in River Ranch Next Week
Lafayette is getting yet another hotel as Tru by Hilton will be opening in River Ranch next week.
The 98-room hotel is located at 1310 Camelia Boulevard and embraces a minimalist yet tech-savvy design. This new location marks the 46th for the brand in the country but only the second in Louisiana (Lake Charles).
The hotel, which will have a staff of about 15, will hold its grand opening at 4:30 pm on November 15.
"We're extremely proud to join the Tru by Hilton brand and introduce travelers to this new midscale lodging offering," general manager Brazette Carlos said. "Our ideal location, unique set of offerings and affordable price make us a desirable choice for guests visiting the Acadiana region."
Single king and two queen style rooms are offered with rates averaging $100 a night. The rooms are smaller but have many nice features like mobile desks, large bathrooms and large flat screen TVs.
The hotel is owned by Om Shanti Om, which is run by the Patel family. They also own the Best Western Lafayette (2207 NW Evangeline Thruway) and Comfort Suites in Lafayette (114 Rue Fernand).
Tru by Hilton is now the third hotel in River Ranch.
